George Washington U.S. Definitive Postage Stamp Issued

On April 11, 2011, in Washington, DC, the Postal Serviceā„¢ issued a 20-cent George Washington definitive stamp in one design in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 20 stamps and a PSA roll of 100 stamps. The stamp was designed by Derry Noyes.

This stamp features a portrait of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828), one of the most celebrated American painters of his era. The painting shown on the stamp is an oil-on-canvas copy Stuart made of a portrait he did from life in 1796.
